Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Falls Apart
I love Bare Minerals but I will never buy their brushes again. I've only had this brush a few weeks and it's bristles fall out so badly that they end up everywhere, including getting into my eyes. VERY poor quality for the price. VERY disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kolby GREAT FOUNDATION BRUSH
I use this brush along with my BE loose mineral matte foundation and it really gives me a flawless look. Some people complain about the brush texture, but I think the brush is great. It works really well with the original and matte foundations. Great product!
Rated 4 out of 5 by GiaNoelle Great for Mineral Veil
I use this brush for the original mineral veil. I wouldn't use it as a foundation brush because it is not firm and doesn't seem like it would provide good coverage. Love it though!
Rated 3 out of 5 by trinityaz I wouldn't buy it, honestly.
This brush came with my foundation starter kit, which is fine, but I probably wouldn't purchase another. The bristles are a bit long, and they could be a bit softer in my opinion (as you are buffing, you skin can get a little sting from this brush). Someone on here said that they needed a hair removal roller after using this because it shed so bad, and I remember thinking, "Oh god, they are so exaggerative." No, no they really aren't exaggerating at all! I was in shock at how many hairs were all over my shirt after my first few uses. Not sure if it is going to eventually stop shedding so much, but not sure if I will keep using it as my main buffing brush, either. Overall, not something I would recommend unless it was free or heavily discounted.
Rated 4 out of 5 by a019 Great for Mineral Veil
I have used this brush for applying both READY touch up veil and the loose powder mineral veil. It works great for both. The bristles are soft, but it does seem to shed a little bit.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mystic13 Favorite Face Brush
This is my favorite brush because it is so versatile. It came with my Complexion Essentials Get-Started Kit, and I'm so glad for it. I use this brush mostly to apply Pure Radiance over my cheeks and brow bone, sometimes using it on the bridge-of-nose, forehead and chin area. I have also used it to apply Mineral Veil over my entire face, but I like to have one brush dedicated per product so colors don't get mixed up.
It provides light-to-medium coverage. I don't own many BE brushes (I also have the Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush & the Heavenly Face Brush), but it is the softest of those three and definitely way softer than the drugstore and other online retailer brushes that I've owned. I've washed it twice with the BE Brush Conditioning Shampoo. It cleans and reshapes easily, and I haven't had any shedding issues.
Rated 4 out of 5 by beautylovekcmo good makeup brush, but not the best
I got this brush in one of the Get Started kits a little while ago. I mainly use it to apply the Original and Matte Foundations. It gives a light to medium coverage with those products, just as BM promises. If you want more coverage from those foundations, I don't think this is the brush for you for that purpose. It you do want light to medium coverage, this brush does a great job picking up the powder and buffing it onto the skin. I know other people have used this brush to apply Warmth and Mineral Veil as well. The brush itself isn't the softest brush I've ever owned but it certainly isn't harsh on my skin. I haven't had many shedding issues, but my brush is relatively new so I'll have to see what happens there. Overall, my advice would definitely be to look at the uses of other BM brushes and just decide which best fits your needs!
Rated 1 out of 5 by PinNJ My original one was great ... my last two sheds
I loved my original brush from years ago but as all good things come to an end, my last two brushes I bought shed. I am so disappointed because I use to love this brush but now I find it all over my clothes and face. I wish it was manufactured better.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Chelsk It was good at first..
When I first got this brush, I thought it was awesome, but the longer I used it the worse it got. It lost all it's shape, started to shed like crazy and didn't apply the product as well as it did in the beginning. I have found much better brushes to use with this product that do it justice. I will not be picking this brush up again.
Rated 4 out of 5 by azooeydejesusgirl Flawless Application Face Brush
I have a love/hate relationship with this brush. On the one hand, it applies my blush/bronzer/mineral veil evenly, without being too much. On the other hand, the bristles do shed and lose some of its softness.
Also, because the bristles are natural, after you wash them they do become soft again, but lose some of stiffness in sticking together. Overall, it does do a good job of applying what I need it to and making it look "flawless;" just wish that for one of the staple brushes it would keep some of its integrity.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TiffMarie Great for all-over face color and blushes
This was one of the first BE brushes I ever bought. I use it for warmth all over face color, blushes and bronzers. It helps ensure the colors go on smoothly and naturally, without a cakey look. I can use this to also brush color under the jawline or even my neck, and it works great. I own several of these, and I use them all the time.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kkdi12 hurts my face!
This brush really hurts my sensitive skin and brings out the redness. It does cover well, btu if you have sensitive prone skin and you turn red easily I would beware.
Rated 3 out of 5 by beautystang not bad but...
It pokes my face, feels itchy and it sheds a bit.
It does work though, quite nicely. Wish it wasn't so pokey
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mel76 Gives a nice finish
I use the Ready foundation and been using it with the Precision brush for over a year however sometimes I can look a little cakey with all that coverage so I decided to try the Flawless brush. I like the finish look I get from this brush better. However the brush hairs are not as soft and they shed a lot so I only gave it 3 stars.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shechick Fawless Application Sheder Brush
Received this brush in my starter kit and used to apply mineral veil and warmth. Started losing hairs the second time I used it and by the 3rd time I had more hairs on my face and in my eyes that I never used it again. Really disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Syrinx Great Brush... Not For Me
This is a very nice brush, which is why I gave it five stars. It is just not my cup of tea. I much prefer the buki brush for the type of coverage I want from foundation, and I use the soft focus face brush for applying mineral veil, radiances, bronzer, etc..
That being said, I do have a nice brush roll that I keep this brush in because if I find a use for it, I will not hesitate to break it out and use it. I got it with my get started kit, and I just switched to the handy buki because of my coverage preference.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LATTitude Okay
This brush distributes product evenly, but it sheds and the hairs are difficult to pull off of my skin. Doesn't look so good to have little hairs on your perfectly made-up face.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ray Ray Flawless
I love this brush! It cleans well, applies makeup well, and I've had it for four months and it looks and feels just the same as when I bought it. I'm satisfied.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FancyMaple I use this brush to apply my foundation and love having the control of sheer to medium coverage. It buffs the foundation well and provides nice coverage over my entire face that only take a few minutes to do each morning. The brush is soft and I wash it every two weeks using the BE brush shampoo; it has held up well with the cleaning with only a few hairs falling out over the past several months.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sunni could be a great brush
The last 3 of these brushes I have been very disappointed with. EVERY one of them starts to loose it's bristles with in the first few uses. Every day I have bristles left on my face or in my eyes because of this brush. The last one I got smelled like skunk when I opened the package. I don't know what chemicals you are using when making this brush, but you may want to reconsider.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blah_blah! I use this brush for my mineral veil and Blush and it works perffectly!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tory1643 Depends on the purpose
This brush is hard to rate, because it really depends on what you are using it for. If you have any kind of skin issues, this is not the best brush to apply foundation as it provides a smooth but LIGHT coverage. If you are using it for mineral veil or face color, then it is great. I also have issues with it drying too fuzzy after it has been washed. So, I can only give it four stars, even though I use it nearly everyday.
Rated 4 out of 5 by haystrapps Good for light application
I like a light foundation layer so this works fine. I had tried to use a none BE brush but this one is much better.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sweets Good For mineral veil-but bristles fall out
I'm also having the problem with the bristles falling out. I thought it was just me, but apparently not. I use this brush for mineral veil and for warmth and occasionally for blush but it doesn't give nearly enough coverage for the foundation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShortErica Great smooth finish
I prefer the handy buki for foundation but on good days when I don't need much coverage I use this instead. I use this brush everyday for both warmth and mineral veil. It gives a great light coat. I think this brush is more for all-over-face color and mineral veil as opposed to the criticisms (some other reviews) regarding its usefulness for foundation coverage. That has just been my experience.
Rated 5 out of 5 by M I like this brush for applying my Bare Minerals foundation and also the Illuminating Mineral Veil. If you want a lighter application than the Buki brush, this is the right brush for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KB Love it!
I have had this brush for over 2 years now and it is still in GREAT shape! It is super soft and it works really well for warmth and mineral veil. I wash it at least every 2 weeks with BE Well Cared for brush conditioning shampoo and it comes out softer every time! I do not have a problem with bristles falling out at all! I will never buy brushes from anywhere else ever again!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaffeen Mixed Feelings
I'd actually rate it a 3 1/2 <3's. I don't use it with mineral foundation but with normal compact makeup (I don't have the time to buff for 10 minutes and mineral makeup look the same as compact makeup on me) because it applies pressed (as well as loose) powders lighter than other brushes and builds coverage. It felt really soft when I got it at the store but when I used it I realized it could be softer; sometimes it pricks a little and therefore leaves the skin a little red for a minute after application. The brush also sheds more than you'd expect and smells like old attic through the first few washes. With washes my brush also spread out so it doesn't look as neat as the one pictured here. These are minor details but they can be very annoying! Some positive bits are that it's tapered so it blends makeup well with skin as well as bronzers and blushes and it's a nice medium size so it can be used everyday and while traveling. I'll use it until it dies on me but I'm not 100% sure I'd get it again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ADH Why I do not like this brush
The Flawless Application Face Brush does not give me the right amount of coverage with Foundation or Mineral Veil. I had to go over my face multiple times to get the desired result. It takes me a while to get ready in the morning, so I don't want to spend a lot of time on my face.
The hairs on this brush fall out, and the brush feels prickly on my face. The handle also separated from the brush. I would not purchases this brush again because it did not give me the coverage I desired. The quality of it was not good, either.
I love BE brushes. This one just wasn't for me.
